Introducing kindergarten and primary teachers to critical aspects of OSH and Napo
All teachers should receive training about OSH in their working lives and how to incorporate risk education into their daily work. There are also many free resources from Napo to help teachers incorporate safety and health into educational curricula.
On 15 September, the Latvian focal point holds a seminar to raise awareness among kindergarten and primary teachers of workplace risk factors and how to protect their own health. Two sector-specific videos in Latvian give tips on protecting health and maintaining well-being. Participants then receive a presentation from the National Centre for Education focusing on interactive teaching methods on safety and health and the focal point explains the free-of-charge resources from Napo, including videos and toolkits for teachers in Latvian.
The seminar takes place in Dobele with some 50 kindergarten and primary school teachers from public and private educational establishments in the region.
